What Exams can I take and where can I sit them?

Tutors & Exams have established a network of exam centres located across England,  approved by the UKs Awarding Organisations and Cambridge Assessment International Education (CAIE), to host examinations set by them. In addition we also provide assessment facilities for a number of university distance learning programmes, both here and abroad, as well as delivering examinations for a growing number of professional bodies eg NEBOSH and AAT.

Each centre is able to accommodate a minimum of 80 candidates per exam session on any given day with some centres having capacity to sit over 400 candidates per day utilising an alternate venues located in close proximity to our exam centre.

GCSE

We host GCSE examinations from the following Awarding Organisaions:

  • AQA
  • Pearson Edexcel
  • OCR
  • Eduqas/WJEC

Excluding Science subjects, where we advise candidates to sit alternative IGCSE sciences to avoid the practical element contained within GCSE Science specifications, we offer assessment on over 45 subjects and 100+ specifications across all Awarding Organisations

Details of the subjects we offer can be found here.

IGCSE/International GCSE

Don’t worry…essentially they are the same qualification!  Cambridge Assessment International Education (CAIE) hold the trademark for ‘IGCSE’ preventing Pearson Edexcel from using the same name for their alternate suite of subjects.  Hence Pearson Edexcel use the term International GCSE.  CAIE and Pearson Edexcel are the only two Awarding Organisations offering ‘International GCSEs’.

For those candidates outside of mainstream education seeking to attain a GCSE in a science based subject, we strongly advise them to look at the IGCSE option as it does not require access to a laboratory to complete ‘practicals’ assessment as required by GCSE specifications.

We are presently able to assess over 60 IGCSE/International GCSE subjects, with over one third of those classified as a foreign language. 125+ specifications across both Awarding Organisations.

Details of the subjects we offer can be found here.

A Level (Ofqual Regulated)

We host Ofqual regulated AS and A Levels, ie those made available in the vast majority of schools in England and Wales, offered by the following Awarding Organisations:

Pearson Edexcel
AQA
OCR
Eduqas (WJEC)

We presently offer over 50 subjects at A/AS Level via 120+ distinct specifications.

International A Levels

In addition to Ofqual regulated A Levels we also offer International AS and A Levels offered by the following Awarding Organisations:

Cambridge Assessment International Education (CAIE)

Pearson Edexcel

The CAIE specifications are similar to A Levels offered in England and Wales.

However, there are some differences. For example, if you’re studying sciences, CAIE courses ‘Practicals’ are an assessment requirement unlike A Levels where they are optional.  CAIE assessments are also held twice per year (January and Summer) whereas A Level exams are only sat each Summer. So, in theory, you could sit your CAIE AS papers in January and your CAIE A Level papers in the Summer.

We also host Pearson Edexcel International A Levels.  Unlike Ofqual regulated and CAIE A Levels, which are linearsied ie all assessments are taken at the end of study, Pearson Edexcel International A Levels are unitised

The benefit of Pearson Edexcel IALs, over Ofqual regulated and CAIE A Levels, is that they use the popular and flexible modular approach for all 21 subjects offered, with the exception of Law.  This means exams can be taken at the end of each unit of study, or throughout the programme of study when a student feels prepared and ready, or all together at the end the course. This flexibility, together with exam series in January, June and October, for most subjects and allowing unit re-sits ensures learners have more opportunities to get feedback to improve their performance and get the grade they need to progress

Helping learners to develop higher levels of practical skills in English, mathematics and ICT which can be applied to real life contexts. Many universities, colleges and employers accept Functional Skills Level 2 qualifications as alternatives to GCSE although we advise you check beforehand.

Tutors & Exams routinely assess Level 1 & 2 Functional Skills in all three subjects and each centre has a scheduled Functional Skills exam timetable, with at least one date set each month
